Sanju (title character played by Ranbir Kapoor) is a biopic of Sanjay Dutt, a controversially popular Indian Bollywood actor. He was involved in aiding the terrorists to conduct the most horrific bomb blast that took place in Mumbai. He was also involved with underworld operations, drug abuse and adultery. He also served jail time and is now out.
The movie Sanju is directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The duo collaborated with Sanjay Dutt to make 2 iconic and popular blockbusters Munnabhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munna Bhai. They made a lot of money and the movie helped dilute the actor's image of the above crimes a bit.
Sanjay Dutt is a close friend of the director-producer duo and also turned out to be a golden goose for them in terms of money and acclaim.
So, have Rajkumar Hirani/Vidhu Vinod Chopra addressed this glaring conflict of interest regarding their movie, which is based on a controversial figure who also happens to be their close friend and who was one of the reasons they made a lot of money in the past? Have they addressed this in any interview?
